Wooyung



This is Wooyung, the quilt I made for the Beneath the Southern Sky exhibition. It has not been selected, which is disappointing of course, but not too much, for it is hanging in our dining room and we all love it. It is a whole cloth quilt, made from another gorgeous handdyed fabric from Dyed and Gone to Heaven. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make this quilt!

I really wanted to add some shells but since that would probably be a problem if the quilt had to travel, I didn't - now however I have started to attach some; will show it here when it's finished. I have been collecting shells with small holes at Wooyung Beach for this purpose!

This weekend I have been quite busy with my first custom order at Etsy - a customer bought the oilcloth bunting I showed here and asked if I could make two more as she wanted to hang them in a cubby house. I will send them off tomorrow - she has promised to send some photos, I can't wait to see them!

Gorgeous! Glad your family gets to enjoy it with their meals. I bet the shells look stunning on it too.
Congrats on the Etsy commission!

I love this quilt Linda. I'm so surprised it wasn't selected.

Competition must have been tough, Linda, because we (Mum (Marian) and I) really like it.

I've been following your blog for a short while but don't think I've commented before, so hello! I love the colours on your quilt - I think you really have made the best of them with your quilting. I received the same email for my piece but I'm the same as you - really enjoying it on my wall!
